    Happy 2020! I got one of those gravity feeders that dispense water and can hold a lot. My bunny drinks a lot of water but would tip over his bowls (he's an eager little thing) so I felt like this would solve both the problem of me having to keep refilling and prevent him from tipping. The water...

    Bonding Rabbits With Two Different Eating Habits

    Hi all, I am currently in the process of bonding two female rabbits. I've noticed that one of them, the more dominant one, eats a lot quicker than the other one does. This leads to her trying to steal the other bunny's food after she finishes hers. I'm not sure how I will be able to house...
